The cheapest hand cream??

We hate it when our face becomes dull and dry, aren't we? On my previous post I reviewed a product which is great for moisturizing my face. But then I remember, how about my hands? I  don't really have super dry hands, but I do whenever I wash the dishes because of detergent soap or dish washing liquids, and of course when I am inside a very cool room (but it doesn't happen in my work unless it is raining hard). We often use our hands in every single minute of the day. And it will look saggy when it is not well moisturized. We don't want to have old looking hands right?

Since I am not a big fan of hand creams, I decided to still make a review of this product because I know it will benefit YOU (my dear readers). So if you are one of those who always have drying hands, this SUPER AFFORDABLE MOISTURIZING HAND CREAM is for you. Don't worry, this will not cost you a lot. Hmmm, when I say affordable, I mean less than P20.00. Yes, this hand cream is only P17.00! And you can find it in any WATSON'S branch near you.

Body Treats Perfumed moisturizing hand cream.

The original amount is P59.00 but watson's permanently marked down this to P17.00.
Great steal, isn't it??!!

At the bottom part of the product you can see it's expiration date.
(sorry for the blurry piktyor!)

This is how small the product is. It contains 30ML which is good for about 1 month usage.

This hand cream contains aloe vera (which is a good moisturizing ingredient), Vitamin E and Sweet Almond extracts.

Does it works?
YES! It really works. I actually love this product. It doesn't give me the greasy feeling unlike other moisturizing hand creams. I specially like it's scent which has a sweet milky, refreshing smell. It moisturize my hands very well.

If I am correct, it has 3-4 variants. 
So grab one when you visit Watsons! And you will surely love this too! 
Rainy day is coming (I was about to say winter is coming lol #GOT) so this product will become a must!

Have you tried this product?
What other hand creams you already tried?

Have a nice day everyone!

Say goodbye to dry face!

Dry, flaky skin? 
That has been my problem since I started using the Maxi Peel Exfoliant Solution for my skin breakout (will do a separate post). Yes, if you are using an exfoliant solution, skin dryness is your enemy. Since you can't apply makeup when you have dry skin, cause it will only exaggerate the flakiness, I found the solution to such dilemma.

Though sunblock cream from Maxipeel can help the dryness, I want a moisturizer that I can put before I go to sleep. Since other moisturizers are expensive, as I am walking around at Watson's, i decided to pick this MYRA-E Moisturizer.

Myra Moisturizer P74.00
The Myra-E moisturizer comes in three variants the Myra Moisturizer, Myra Daily Sun Protect,
and Myra Vita White moisturizer.

With regards to its packaging, the front box contains the name and content of the product.

On the side of the box you will see the direction for use and manufacturer.

On the lower part of the other side of the box is its 
ingredients, expiration date and lot no.

The back part of the box detailed the effect of the product.
Is it really a non-greasy formula? Check on the pictures below.

Here's how the product look like.

This one comes with the red cap.
The product itself also contains all the information that the user needs to know.

How the moisturizer looks like?

aw, freckles at the back of my hand!!
As of its consistency, as you can see in the picture. This one is a bit thinner than the sun protect (which has SPF). It has a watery'ish texture.

Upon blending, it feels like a gel or a serum but it needs two to five minutes to really absorb in the skin.

I dom't know why but my hand looks so texturized in this photo.

When absorbed, it doesn't feel sticky or heavy. You can feel that your face becomes soft and supple.

I use this before I go to sleep and before I put my makeup on (which also serves as my primer).
It doesn't break me out and when I wake up in the morning, I don't have any grease or oil on my face. It just a soft and supple skin!

Do I recommend this? YES! I recommend this to all of you. A moisturizer is really an important product since I can feel that the weather is getting colder na. YES! Finally!  So yeah, if you are looking for affordable moisturizer, grab one from MYRA-E moisturizers!

Coming up review : 
Stay tune!

Do I have enough makeup skills?

Last May 4 I was asked by a friend to do her makeup for a wedding. There is also a friend of hers who wants me to do her makeup. I know I am not professional in such thing, but I am very happy when someone put trust on me doing her makeup for special occasion of her life.

We were in a hurry that time since I only have 45 minutes to do their makeup and hair.
That's why I ended up with this look:

Here is ate jean with just foundation on.

And here she is after.
Sorry, I wasn't able to picture the look close up. We were really in a hurry that time.
Ate Jean wants her hair down, so I just made a water fall braid (I know you can't see it in the picture)
But here's how it loos like:

And here is Jennifer before:
Jen already has flawless skin. She really is so pretty!

 And here they are after 3 hours.
What I did on Jen's hair is the criss-cross hair that looks like this:
 I learn this from Lilithmoon on youtube.

I used affordable makeup such as:
Ever Bilena BB Cream (review soon)
MaybellineClear Smooth All in one Foundation
Ever Bilena Eyebrow Pencil (review soon)
Yves Rocher Mascara (as eyeliner)
Maybelline Stiletto Waterproof Mascara (review soon)
Shawill Eyeshadow (review soon)
Sophie Martin Lipstick in Mango Peach  (Jean's lips)
Sophie Martin Lipstick in Ice Pink (Jen's lips)
Sansan Blush (Rose and Peach)
Artist Studio Brushes / Mariounnaud Brushes

And that's it.
